Lefty baseball swing

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
What's up lefty guys? I'm a lefty and I know my biggest problem is that I have a very round or "baseball" swing with my shots. I was just wondering if anyone else had the same problem or if it was just me. Any tips or drills would be sweet. Thanks guys.

First of all, I just discovered this in my swing as well 4 months ago when my new coach mentioned it.

 

Now, I have been working really hard to get rid of it.

 

I am currently working on keeping my spine angle and using the towel drill under the arms to keep the upper arms by my body. Also, I am trying to keep the elbows together as my coach suggest (and Ben Hogan suggest in his book).

 

I just completely changed my putting three weeks ago, and am just starting to get the feel of it.

 

When I first made these changes, my strokes per round went up 10-15 just because I would revert back to the old flat swing when I got tired.

 

Last week I had a great front 9 score of 42 (and that includes a blowup hole, I parred 5 holes), but then 50 on the back because I was tired and reverted back to my old habits.

 

I am going to play Friday and Sunday and see what those scores will be like, as my range hits have been really good this last week.

I have same problem. Was demoing Nike covert driver, salesman said loft is your friend, turn driver to I think 12 degrees and closed face. man what a difference. no slice and gained 20 yards ( not a long hitter 220 yards is great for me). I was still skeptical found a 12 degree driver and it is still in bag. I am by no means a good golfer,but this was the best thing for my game. I also found out I turn my hands under, instead of over the top. Golf channel broom drill really helped. Old broom paint white one side. black on other side. Swing broom like a driver. Check out golf channel web site, may have video. Now if I am not careful it is a dead pull ob right.
